By acquiring the Expertise business line of Ingelis, ELITT extends its services to expertise and tests of digital identity products (e-Passports, driving licences, and more). Covering the equipment, the know-how, the testing services offers and the technical staff of Ingelis Expertise, this external growth is a “first” in the history of ELITT. ELITT enhances its range of specific services related to digital identity technologies as compliance tests against key standards and technical assistance for the development of products and interoperability testing. ELITT can carry out many tests of durability: ageing, mechanical strength and resistance in disturbed environment like resistance to heat, moisture, X-rays, electrostatic discharge (ESD), magnetic fields, and more. Providers of e-Passports, identity cards, driving licenses but also scratch cards and tickets (phone, games, and more) are now going to benefit from all the services proposed by ELITT, including its global expertise. “After its historic electronic banking activity followed by transport and healthcare, ELITT gets a fourth business line in digital identity. This demonstrates our ambition to become a major player in the ecosystem of secure electronic transaction,” comments Jean-Pierre Dubord, ELITT’s COO.
